Warriors Bring Showtime to Los Angeles

Golden State continued their record setting pace with a 111-101 home win last night over the Hornets. It was their third straight game of 111 points or more, and they’ll be looking to continue their high scoring ways tonight vs the Lakers at Staples Center.

Shark Bites
  • Golden State is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games.
  • The Lakers are 1-9 SU and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games after winning as an underdog.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Lakers' last five games at home.

The Warriors absolutely demolished the Lakers earlier in the season—111-77, easily covering a 17 point spread. The win bumped the Warriors to 7-3 SU and ATS over the Lakers in their last 10 matchups.

The Lakers are an underwhelming 15-20 ATS on the season, but have gone on a 5-1 ATS run over their last six games. The Lakers are also off to a strong start in 2016, winning three straight games SU. Lou Williams of all people has led the way for the Lakers in the three wins, averaging 24.3 points during the streak.

Despite the Lakers short run of success, they’ve been absolutely dreadful against other Western Conference teams, posting a 2-20 SU and 4-18 ATS record vs Western foes over their last 22 games.

The Warriors look like a solid bet tonight (just like every other night), as they’re 6-0 ATS in their last six games against divisional opponents, and 5-1 ATS in the second games of back-to-backs.

A 102-101 result in favor of the Warriors is the prediction by the Odds Shark handicapping pick engine. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NBA matchups here.
